Ma'am, were you aware that your car was on fire?
[Bernadine nods her head while smoking a cigarette]
Ma'am, did you start this fire?
[she puffs smoke and plainly looks at him]
You know, it's against the law to burn anything except trash in your yard.
[flicks off ashes from her cigarette]
It is trash.
Look, this is a nice area. Luckily, a neighbor cared enough. Listen, the next time you want to burn something...
It won't happen again.

This film brought me to tears not because it was so emotional I had to cry but being a Black man and a working actor making a living for 20 + years, It was the first time a big budget, well shot, well acted (Whitney is still weak at times), well directed film about "most" black lives got a big theatrical release. Most black films (Excluding Spike Lee) are about thugs or are so low budget you never get to see them. It was about time!
